So since I’m way too impatient to wait until the fab rug completes the nook, I’m going to just go ahead and show you the update! I found this wonderful fabric on clearance at fabric.com and then found an online coupon code that worked. I was able to score seven yards of fabric for $45! I love that it fits with my coastal theme. Look at those precious little seahorses!
To make these panels, I mismeasured my fabric (yes you read that right) and then glued all my edges with hot glue (again..you read that right). I don’t sew unless it’s absolutely necessary and my hot glue hasn’t yet let me down. I had originally planned on gathering my fabric in a pleated fashion at the top, but my mismeasuring required me to hang the fabric from ring clips.
Since these are just dummy panels (sorry panels, not trying to insult your drapiness…it’s just what you’re called) and I have no intention of ever closing them, I just folded the fabric tightly and placed ring clips to secure.
So did you catch that? To make these curtains, I cut the fabric to the sort-of correct length, “hemmed” it with my hot glue gun, added some glued on trim, and hung them from ring clips.
And here they are! I love how the fabric defines the space and warms the space.
I’m also loving how the colors in the fabric compliment my stone backsplash that I started last July and have yet to finish. I’m hoping this picture motivates me to start grouting again!
So what do you think? Won’t this space be perfect once my rug arrives? I’m sure I won’t be able to resist showing you once again!
